About Heather Anne

I have been in the education business for over 10 years, and feel that a student needs comfort and security in order to succeed in the academic and professional world. I use the one on one tutoring method to achieve this goal and take the student under my wing as I lead them down the road to academic, and professional success.

I have traveled to many places and countries (including England, France, and Italy) to educate myself about various cultures through out the world and never cease the desire to learn. I feel that people are "never too old to learn!" This is why I invented the whole educate outside the box strategy in which she has proven success! I also feel that the arts plays a major role in a student's education. As an advocate of the arts myself, I have broadened my horizons by leaps and bounds and I use this to guide students who do not get exposure to the arts neither in school nor at home.

My motto is "Educate Outside The Box!" Yes, educating students outside the box is where the sense of security and of comfort come into play. Our company uses various educational mediums including field trips to help students succeed not only in the classroom, but in the professional world also.

Customer testimonials
"When Heather's Private Tutoring opened in 2001, I hired them to educate and provide extra instruction in the English language to my son who was then starting first grade, and now he has entered one of the most prestigious Yeshivas in the NY Metro Area as a High School Freshman in their honors program!"
Touna R. Staten Island, NY

"Heather's Private Tutoring took my son by the hand, when we were living in Brooklyn during his fourth grade year, pinpointed where he was struggling in reading and showed him that reading is fundamental. He will be graduating High School as a main stream student next year! Thank you for all your hard work!" Christine P. Orlando, FL

"Heather's Private Tutoring helped me excel in math and reading when I was in the third grade. They made every effort to see that I passed all my tests, and showed me how to study more carefully." Gabrielle S. Brooklyn, NY

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

American History

It is important for students to know what foundations our country was laid on and how people embrace these foundations.

Autism

As a part of my professional training for my masters degree at St. John's University, we had to take several special education courses that dealt with learning to handle students with special needs including autism.

During training we used the "Rain Man" method in which we had to look out for the emotional, mental and behavioral signs of an autistic person. We also learned that if a child did not start talking by the age of two the mental signs of autism were beginning to present itself. We also learned that if the child's behavioral and emotional signs were not stabilized by the age of five, teachers are allowed to send a child to the school support team for autism evaluation.

Autism. like ADHD affects a student's learning progress severely and they need extra attention in order to succeed in school.

Bible Studies

I am a certified catechist with the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of NY and have taught CCD for 4.5 years.

I have taught religious studies at St. Teresa’s School, Staten Island, New York. My duties included preparing and teaching weekly lessons based on what chapter they were on and the doctrines that we were going to be learning about each week. I have also assigned pre-made take home tests and unit exams related to weekly doctrine lessons.

While I was here, I also prepared second grade students for the sacraments of confession (penance) in which I instructed students in the guidelines of receiving this sacrament and taught special prayers that are associated with confession, and the holy eucharist (communion) which involves the learning of more special prayers and practices that make up the liturgy of the eucharist in the Catholic church.

I have also lead local religious retreats for the communion and confirmation students in the weeks prior to their special day.

I also attended special training seminars that were held annually at another local church in which we learned how to emphasize our lessons and make them adaptable to the practices of the outside world. This can also apply to Bible studies because I was also taught how to interpret the Bible.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked in the NYC public schools as a per diem subsitute teacher, and also taught students privately. I have a masters degree in elementary education.

I have worked with the following companies and individuals over the past 13 years:

The Academic Advantage, Los Angeles, CA, Huntington Learning Center, Staten Island, New York

I assisted Students in prescribed reading and math programs based on what areas
that were needed for improvement. I gave one on one instruction to younger students that are enrolled in the program in both reading and math.

Touna R., Staten Island, New York

Tutored her son in all aspects of English language subjects for elementary school students
Assisted her son in writing various assignments through out the school year, and engage him in study techniques that will help him pass tests and challenge him, due to his gifted status.

New York City Department of Education, NY, NY, File Number: 758541
Per Diem Substitute Teacher

Taught lessons/given tests that were left by regular teacher.
Assigned homework given by regular teacher for the next day.
Proctored various exams given incl. NYS-ELA Test Grade 8.

Elementary Science

Students need to know the basics of science in order to ace harder sciences like biology and chemistry.

Geography

Able to help students learn about cities, countries, and location skills.

Grammar

Able to help students develop better grammatical skills so that they can master the English language correctly.

Handwriting

I am an experienced private tutor that has worked with elementary school students for over 15 years. Good Handwriting is essential and very important. Students need to know how to write a signature, write up drafts when computers are not readily available, put together good sentence structures, learn to write neatly and legibly. These are just a few of the handwriting basics that need to be learned and I can teach those basics with dignity and ease for the students.

Law

I cover all aspects of the law field.

Microsoft Word

Able to teach adults MS Word and all aspects needed to help them learn MS Word software.

Phonics

The study of phonics is important since it can help a student read and speak more efficiently and clearly. With good phonetic skills a student will be able to enunciate words more clearly and with ease.

I feel that phonics is crucial in the early grades (Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd and 3rd) because when good phonics skills are implemented in these grades, it provides a solid background in pronunciation of more difficult words that a student will face as their vocabularies build.

Reading

Reading is an essential key in life, and learning how to properly read will help that key open life's doors.

Regents

As a tutor, I have worked in test prep for five of my ten plus years in the tutoring field. I have helped students pass many standardized tests including, but not limited to regents exams. Over the years I have showed students that the best way to pass a standardized test like the regents is through proper preparation and challenging study tactics. When preparing a student for a standardized test like the regents I utilize test preparation books that will gear and prepare them for the actual exam. 100% of the students that I have worked with have passed the standardized tests including the regents.

Religion

I am a certified catechist with the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of NY and have taught CCD for 4.5 years.

I have taught religious studies in the following school, St. Teresa’s School, Staten Island, New York. My duties included preparing and teaching weekly lessons based on what chapter they were on and the doctrines that we were going to be learning about each week. I have also assigned pre-made take home tests and unit exams related to weekly doctrine lessons.

While I was here, I also prepared second grade students for the sacraments of Confession (Penance) in which I instructed students in the guidelines of receiving this sacrament and taught special prayers that are associated with Confession, and the Holy Eucharist (Communion) which involves the learning of more special prayers and practices that make up the Liturgy of the Eucharist in the Catholic Church.

I have also lead local religious retreats for the communion and confirmation students in the weeks prior to their special day.

I also attended special training seminars that were held annually at another local church in which we learned how to emphasize our lessons and make them adaptable to the practices of the outside world.
